Apple MacBook Pro 13.3” Laptop with Intel Core i5 Processor (Refurbished)
The MacBook Pro offers convenient features that include durable aluminum casing, a SuperDrive for watching or burning DVDs or CDs, and a processor equipped with Turbo Boost for the times that you need extra power.
Whether you’re buying this machine for convenience or fun, it comes preloaded with things you’ll need. Entertainment-ready folks can jump right in with Photo Booth, DVD Player, and Front Row media center, whereas business-minded users will appreciate intuitive apps including iCal, Mail, Address Book, and Xcode Developer Tools.
More Power—But Only When You Need It
The MacBook Pro’s Intel processor has a trick up its sleeve. With Turbo Boost, the processor can automatically overclock when you need it, ramping from up to 2.5GHz to a boosted load of up to 3.1GHz—then settling back down and wiping its sweaty brow on your sleeve when the power-intensive work is through.
Spacious Hard Drive
A 500GB hard drive has room for plenty of files and programs. When it comes to media, 500 gigs is room enough for roughly 8,500 hours of music, 500 hours of video, or 155,000 photos.

In the box: Apple MacBook Pro laptop and AC charger
From the start, Steve Jobs was enthralled with not only the novelty of technology but also its design. When speaking about the Apple computer, he said it was “going to be insanely beautiful.” Over the years, Apple’s products have worked to fuse innovative technology with almost artful design. The iMac stunned the world with its colorful plastic shells, which the New York Times said “more closely resemble a pack of Life Savers than a new computer line.” The glossy white iPod—no bigger than a deck of playing cards—could hold an entire library of music. Time Magazine named the iPhone the Invention of the Year for its stunning design and, uniquely, because of the promise it held for even better products in the future. With each new item they launch, Apple works to shape the way future societies communicate, learn, and dance when they’re alone.
